Odysseo

 

In the July/August issue Armando Biasi chats with Darren Charles, the choreographer and resident director for Odysseo, the wildly popular equine extravaganza produced by Cavalia, currently in the third year of its worldwide tour

How did you match your experience choreographing for dancers with choreographing for horse riders?
That was tricky. [The riders] don’t have a background in dance, so I had to really bring more of the sense of movement to them and their posture. I focused on using the training and power of dance to enhance their tricks, making everything more extended and pointed.
